Product Manual



Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Shredder for the price This shredder works better than anticipated. It is a replacement for my old Fellowes strip shredder which lasted for many years. Crosscut shredding is done quickly without jamming in this machine. Quietly shreds multiple pages at a time and indicates when hopper is full. It is easy to assemble and has wheels so it can be moved easily. Easy to empty. I'm very happy with my purchase. October 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great shredder This shredder gets a lot of use and it can handle our busy office shredding needs. It has reverse, which we like, but we never need to use reverse because it automatically knows when there is too much paper being shredded: a red light will come on to let you know. Also, it is well made, and easy to use. I think that we will not need a new shredder for years to come. September 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fellows 73ci Shredder After purchasing numerous shredders for home use I can say without any reservations that this is the best shredder that I have ever purchased and used. I am glad I made the decision to purchase this shredder. Right out of the box it has worked perfectly and hasn't missed a lick. My wife even made a comment as to how quiet it is. The only thing I see that could be improved on is the design of the bucket to collect the shredded paper in but it is really not an issue. Even with with a plastic bag in place it still gets some paper in the bottom of the bucket that was not caught in the bag. September 14, 2015
